About

Hi there!  I'm Melanie, the girl behind the camera.  Thanks for stopping by and taking the opportunity to get to know me better.

I am married to my best friend of 12 years, and mom to the two most adorable girls in the world (if I do say so myself!).  My photography journey came to be as I became a mother.  I never wanted to take any of those precious days for granted, and I knew that photography would help me preserve all of the memories that I continue to hold in my heart forever!  I knew that I wanted to document every sweet detail, from their bright and beautiful eyes, to their wispy hair, freckles, and those adorable gap-toothed smiles.

Now I have realized what a passion this is for me to create art of not only my own daughters, but the babies, children, and growing families of others.  I have enjoyed creating art throughout my life, so becoming a photographer seemed like just an extension of the nearly constant drawing and painting of my grade school days.  In addition to photography, I love spending time with family and friends, traveling, summertime, live music, fresh flowers, hiking, the beach, gardening, and long distance running.  I am also a labor and delivery nurse, and I continue to work in this career part-time.  It is something I have loved to do for a long time (going on 10 years now!).  Both photography and nursing have brought me so much joy and fulfillment over the years.

I started shooting professionally in 2008 and I haven't set the camera down since!  I am based out of Utah County and serve clients from all over the Provo and Salt Lake City areas.  I love being able to photograph newborns, babies, and children right in my own home studio.  I equally love exploring the beautiful outdoors here in Utah for all of those fun family portrait sessions.  I look forward to capturing your own story soon!  Thank you for choosing me to be your photographer. 

Sincerely,
Melanie
